MORNING QUICKIES
Janice Dickinson Wants Bill Cosby To Admit That He's "A Pig And A Monster"
"Put a lie detector test on Bill Cosby."
  • Janice Dickinson broke down in tears while speaking with CNN about her allegation that Bill Cosby raped her. “This is affecting me in my house, it’s affecting me, it’s probably affected these women,” Dickinson said. “But I’m strong and I’m gonna stand on my own two feet and I’m gonna tell my side of the story and it’s not gonna end here.” She said that she wishes she had gone to the police when the rape occurred and that what she wants is for Cosby to admit that he is “a pig, and a monster.” [CNN]
  • Welp, Bill Cosby has at least one famous person in his corner — singer Jill Scott says that the media is trying to destroy Cosby’s “magnificent legacy” by, uh, reporting on the mounting sexual allegations being leveled at the entertainer, I guess? [The Root]
  • Scarlett Johansson got secretly married to her hot French journalist baby daddy in October. [People] Keep reading »

Frisky Rant: University President’s Outdated Views On Alcohol, Chastity & Rape Prevention Aren’t Representative Of Eckerd College

Frisky Rant: University President's Outdated Views On Alcohol, Chastity & Rape Prevention Aren’t Representative Of Eckerd College

This past week, I’ve been both livid and mortified by the national news coverage of my beloved alma mater Eckerd College, thanks to the following letter from the university president, sent last Sunday to the entire student body:

Dear Eckerd College students,

As you know, the College has launched an educational and awareness campaign to attempt to minimize sexual harassment and assault in our community. The goal is to raise the awareness of all community members with respect to sexual harassment and assault and to help prevent those incidents by that increased awareness.

You also know that our College is not alone in its concern about such behavior, principally among its students. And you know that these incidents are almost always preceded by consumption, often heavy consumption, of alcohol, often by everyone involved in them.
You can do your part in helping this College and this culture address this nexus of problems by doing two relatively simple things: Keep reading »

Shia LaBeouf Says He Was Raped During His Performance Art Show

Shia LaBeouf Says He Was Raped During His Performance Art Show

Remember earlier this year, when Shia LaBeouf held a silent performance art show called “#IAMSORRY” in Los Angeles? It was pretty much a rip-off of Marina Abramović’s “The Artist Is Present,” in that visitors got to interact with LaBeouf in, apparently, whatever way they wanted to. And according to an email interview LaBeouf did with Dazed magazine, one visitor raped him during the performance while her boyfriend and LaBeouf’s girlfriend were waiting in line outside.

Frisky Rant: No, The Wrap, Bill Cosby Is Not Being “Raped” By His Accusers’ Allegations

Frisky Rant: No, The Wrap, Bill Cosby Is Not Being Raped By His Accusers' Allegations

This Saturday, entertainment blog The Wrap posted a stunningly tone-deaf guest op-ed entitled “The Rape of Bill Cosby.” The tongue-in-cheek opening line read “Bill Cosby raped me.” And that was the best part of the entire debacle. The remainder of the piece, which was meant to be an excoriation of liberal media (on a liberal media site no less – gotta love life’s rich pageant), has instead become Exhibit A in the case of The Wrap engendering rape culture, and it is a steaming pile of gross, triggering garbage.

Frank Scotti, a former facilities manager for NBC, says that he paid off as many as eight women for Bill Cosby from 1989-1990, telling The New York Daily News, “I did a lot of crazy things for him.
